VOLUNTEER/Internship
PLACE workshops and exhibitions only occur 
when we are awarded big enough funding.

During the quiet time we still need your very part time help - work a lot remotely.
  • Fundraising and Grant writing - on the job training if you like writing.
  • Admin organizing of digital files on Google Drive and photos on Flickr and Google Drive.
  • Video editor to help us edit the Artists Talk and show footage to create accessible short films. During the program, we may have an honorarium based need for a videographer.
